The room also offers access to a sunroom-like porch with louvered windows on three sides and a door to the rear deck. The kitchen has a parquet hardwood floors and a tiled backsplash above the L-shaped countertop, and two bedrooms share a full bath on the main level. The lower level houses the second bath, along with a rec room, a laundry room, and access to the interior garage. A partially-finished attic offers the opportunity for bonus space or a new owner's suite, and the house also has a generous amount of yard space.

Rustic With Studio Space in Sligo Park Hills
A block from the Sligo Avenue Neighborhood Park, this 2,200 square-foot stone cottage comes with a bit of a surprise out back. French doors off the front porch lead into the living room with its painted stone panel fireplace and ceiling beams. The dining room has a rounded bay with leaded-top windows above a ledge, and there is a bonus room on the main level with shelving built in on three sides of a window and separate access to the sideyard. The lower level houses a bedroom, laundry room, and a rec room with wet bar nook between its white-painted brick walls. The backyard is peppered with garden areas, and a driveway alongside the house leads to the surprise: a former garage that has been converted to serve as wooden-floored workspace.

The kitchen also houses a wine fridge, a combination washer/dryer, and a cooktop atop the counter, along with providing access to a private rear brick patio. The main bedroom upstairs has a built-in media center and double exposure with interior colonial shutters, and shares a bathroom with the second bedroom.
